Mark it on your calendar, grab your bub and head to the H.B. Williams Memorial Library . . . the He Kākano - Little Seeds programme has started.
The first day of sing-alongs and stories for under-two-year-olds began yesterday with little ones enjoying a poi session.
He Kākano - Little Seeds (previously called Baby Time) is one of the free preschool programmes the library runs during each school term for littlies up to the age of two and their caregivers.
The library also runs Te Pihinga - Little Sprouts (previously called Toddler Time) every Thursday at 10.30am for two-to-five year-olds and their caregivers.
The fun programmes involve music and reading sessions run by Katarina Collier — the newly-appointed children and young adults librarian.
The aim is to grow lifelong readers.
